is great to be here this afternoon that is the absolutely number one priority 2014-2015 for the mta we've got a broad range of materials we'll be starting with tim pitching for megan he'll be talking about the research about the refined high energy network it is an important data many undermines the strategy and you'll come back and talk about the engineering product delivery and the education underway and talk about some of the policies o policy rules we have that be coming out of the vision zero task force over the next couple of years with that, i'm going to turn it over to timothy talking
10:02 pm
about the new data natural lyrics. >> good afternoon, commissioners timothy with mta unfortunately megan can't be here she has a home situation i'm going to go over the updates the network which we've made tremendous progress a couple of years ago just quick you background in 2011, we started working on gathering the data on the resources and we went from intersection data to the correlation with crossroads there's on overlap of neighbors one thing we saw we added in some additional data that come in that includes the various
10:03 pm
modes as they came available like the corridors we recently added last spring one thing we've found is while we see the fatalities between vehicles and people the fatalities by mode are quite stalk only 2/3rd's felt fatalities are motorist collision so the difference between this and vision zero it is proving street traffic so this is a big shift since the network so what you see now we have the data for pedestrian vehicle to pedestrian collisions and fatalities we have motorcyclist collisions and
10:04 pm
bicycle there are 12 percent of street miles that is not that many still a high concentration of the streets that equalities one hundred and 25 miles from the goal of 13 of those miles you saw three-quarters regardless of the modes the traffic collisions it is a focused allocations we have in the city can you ask a quick question i want to make sure i said 12 percent of our streets or 70 percent of people and vehicles have severe fatalities on 12 percent of our streets. >> exactly, exactly yeah, we thought that, too it is of those modes it is still hatch
10:05 pm
on those particular streets some overlaps but on these corridors we have our work kit out for us to break down it those are the pedestrian injuries they also have a two-thirds overlap this is a hover lap with the different modes the same thing with bicycling it is fairly concentrated in the same areas with driver passenger and motorcyclists it is concentrated in the urban core area and then lastly the counties of concern the areas that are prominently low income micro populations they generally speak
10:06 pm
other language other than english and recent arrivals are experiencing the collisions there's an additional network that is not part of the three-way network we'll be working with caltrain and the other states departments improving the safeties along the corridors we've come a long way since 2011 and have a network we draw from its important to points out we're - there are situations happen outside of the network we'll voluntary to address our goal through vision zero if we dissolve those treatment we believe to resolve them i'm going to end that
10:07 pm
sector of the presentation and get back to the other one i'll have sandra do it i'll i'm going to turn it over to tom to go over the update we have. >> okay. >> unless you have questions. >> can we call item 4 to 5 together we have to public comment seeing none, on item 3. >> chair kim can i congratulate the two gentlemen from bringing

10:11 pm
been the most time i want to give you an update open the product deliver mta and it's partnering agencies delivering the safety improvements tim showed us the map a few minutes we're going to start request education it is john who will talk about the work that supervisor kim mentioned. >> good afternoon two quick updates i want to reflect the large vehicles work we've been doing our team a hanging added mta has been working with advocates ecology and fedex and other city departments to develop policies for the larger program we're aiming for early spring roll out
10:12 pm
next year additionally as of yesterday the mta includes in all contracts we signed with the contractors they'll have to offer this training to all contractors have coming in the city and i know that is positively something that will come forward and additionally on safe streets and the education subcommittee vision zero we're putting together a citywide strategy an item that supervisor yee had recommended we have a strategy currently underway we're doing best practices research but we're on schedule to having a draft strategy that we can come and bring back spring of next year hoping to have that draft completed by the
10:13 pm
end of march but that strategy will be a first step in the city talking about saying that all departments are going to work together in developing an education mostly an education program making our streets safe it is a long time coming we're making progress i don't know if you have questions about the safe street program we're a thousand pledges for safe streets in our county that both joined the effort and will be putting the budget inspections displaying their support and shuttle drivers are joining at this point in time and we are doing roll out and presentations to the chamber of commerce getting on the agenda for this etc. and as part of that the project
10:14 pm
is underway sfpd is out with additional enhanced enforcement doing focus pedestrian right-of-way enforcement for about 4 hours everyday four to five officers >> supervisor mar. >> i see one of the equalities how do we reach out to locking families to make those communities safer. >> that is a personal value of mine something we he'd in the education strategy it is how we make sure we do that we are currently working with the san francisco conservation core to do a community outreach on our focus corridors and
10:15 pm
chinatown cd c to reach out to the communities both business and on the street outreach to the folks that are living and working there and shopping there as well but we do so that the grant that we are writing the grants that will be kifk next year and has a commitment before the grant we got it all the grants have that written directly into them. >> with the bicycle coalition reaching into the community and walk sf i think community partners will be helpful two. >> they're at the table for almost every meeting. >> i have a question i think it is great you mentioned the number of the shuttle programs what is that exactly mean.
10:16 pm
>> so i guess i can say the shuttle pilot they're being asked to talk to the drivers about safe driving on, on the street and required by going through the permitting progress and partnering in the pilot program to over the curriculum once the actual video is released next spring. >> so everyone will be required to use the vehicle program. >> it was written into the contract. >> and when you said that taxicabs are also voluntarily participating what does that mean. >> part of the safe streets we have a pledge that we ask the drivers and pedestrians to take we ask people to change the way they behave on the streets when
10:17 pm
you look for behavior change one of the most important things we ask people to take a pledge and use the streets safely and be mind fulfill to spread the word that safety is important once people have taken the pledges it is found they're more welcoming to medications that tell them how to be safe we have brochures and talking points for people that sign up for safe streets for the first step to how to be slowing up to make sure that people are aware of left turns and movements before people are hitting pedestrians trying to increase the awareness of what is happening when people are getting hit and steps to change
10:18 pm
their behavior so with the taxicab companies and specific we're distributing bump stickers for drivers wells fargo to take the pledge and take this seriously and receive a talking point for the actions we're ask them to pledge. >> after the pledge they get a series of educational items does it say found once you take the pledge they're more open what is that based on on. >> it is based on a number of studies people are not receptive if asking people to change their world if you do something for the environment they're more receptive. >> okay. >> that is good to hear i hope we're able to do more
10:19 pm
substantive work its a step forward and more alignment with supervisor yee is doing on the campaign will be w be cooperation so frequent driver education program and also the work that supervisor yee is doing citywide education on vision zero. >> well, i would say theirs coordination i think there is inherit coordination but the large vehicle driver education is a small piece we're hoping by march we'll identify the types of audience we see need to go after, etc. the larger vehicle collection will be done and underway we're working with the dmv to see if we can't get those
10:20 pm
requirements more stating like truck drivers at the end to cross injuringal burgundy we're talking with the foengz folks that write the tests at the dmv to get a couple of questions they're open to writing a couple of questions more focused on pedestrian safety and bicycle safety in urban areas which are not covered right now. >> maybe on our next committee he meeting we're here more. >> mr. white can you ask a question through the chair are the transit agencies taking the pledges too. >> well, they are mini operators have been going through a bicycle training specific to driving on city streets we're doing you outreach with the larger vehicle curriculum to aid the
10:21 pm
transportation, etc. golden gate transit, etc. we're not specifically gone out and asked the drivers to take the pledge yet. >> thank you. >> okay thanks john were education e the next is enforcement i'm sorry that commander lee is not here she's out on the streets keeping pedestrians and drivers safe where flooding and power sections are disbelieved i'll give a quick overview of the statistics as of september a big increase in the number of citations that have been issued traffic citations both traffic companies and in some cases by the pcos we've began a coordinated effort between mta and the pd to comply our
10:22 pm
services more fiscally where walking the box is happening and so that the drivers who block areas south of market in the areas near freeway ramps understand that is a sustained effort they're not going to get away with it after the studies we found that blocking the box drops 80 percent because of the presents of the inclination combination of the officers we're going to continue that for 0 year and try to put a dent in blocking the box. >> excuse me. >> supervisor breed. >> do you have your presentation on available to the commissioners? i can't read it from the system.
10:23 pm
>> okay do we have a hardcopy. >> maybe that one but not the one. >> in the packet dollars a general written report in the packet. >> i don't think everyone has the packet. >> there's a presentation title entitled vision zero. >> just for the people watching at home and the director for the programming at the transportation authority i think the power point presentations are online at the first presentation is in your enclosure are to the packet and the power point is in the actual packet of the material. >> just for clarity on the item not in the there's only one told
10:24 pm
them section. >> one - there is an enclosure which which is the vision zero high injury mapping data and then there is an attachment to one of the agenda items that is in the actual packet of the materials and that's the presentation that tom is giving right now. >> sorry for the confusion. >> sorry to interrupt. >> okay. then we talk about evaluation being a part of vision zero we want to make sure we're tracking the forest fireness of the action in all the program areas tim showed day showing high injury the multiple high injury that is again be the baseline we're tracking to show
10:25 pm
us where we're making progress and we'll talk about this when we get into the strategy update but it is important that we're tracking outcomes vision zero is about outcomes not the pcos or dollars we put in but how many lives we save and towards vision zero you'll look at the evaluation through that lens we'll talk about later on policies we did a good job to coordinate the policies we'll have control over again by the commitment we got from the board of supervisors and from our own leadership that is important probation officer to look outdoor and upward at the state level to look at the laws that
10:26 pm
might be holding us back if vision zero from safety enforcement to look at whether or not we should drop some programs for 25 miles to 20 there are issues we've got get to later i want to talk about the delivery of the projects something i know has been a concern for the public and for commissioners over the last year so what i want to emphasize a lot of has changed in the rifrp between sfmta and the partnering agencies that help us with vision zero vision zero nodes those more than you know more than the board wouldn't just mta it is a great role public works and the puc are very important partners i'm going to talk about some of the ways we're cooperating our efforts better
10:27 pm
and they're bearing fruit up on the screen we have an image of an internal tracking database dashboard that shows the projects that we have in the pipeline with the status with the status of those projects and it is drawing from shared information that is information that sfmta has within our capital program and our financial controls the idea to have all the agencies talking from a common mr. chairman where are the projects and the details and flipping behind schedule we are working from a common story that's the first thing pull up something that we're working with depending to show
10:28 pm
transparency so while the dashboard gets into the nuances of the incredible that might not be what the public wants to see i'm pulling up the tractorer that will eventually be on the city's website and which members of the public and members of the board of supervisors and other stakeholders can use to get a quick look at the projects and hopefully, if you have questions on where we are not on schedule. >> so next slide okay
10:29 pm
another issue i know is a concern how are reprioritizing projects we have lots of data about where the injuries and crashes are occurring we also know that we made a commitment to deliver 24 projects in 24 months we have a pipeline of over 40 projects we're trying to move forward i want to make it clear to everyone the projects we're bringing forward in the pipeline and the pipeline behind those 40 projects we'll schooler not stop at 40 they were found on the multiplied mobile network on the streets tim talked about the idea when you look at the map you see the goodgraphies spread over the city one of the interesting things i found when i was looking at the data the
10:30 pm
initiative walk first safety action approach showed that south of market and the tenderloin were kind of the real high collision locates for pedestrian safety projects and that's what we focusing a large number of trafficking on and safety promotions that are designed to protect pedestrians from moving vehicles and quite a few streets outside the geographies vehicle versus other is safeties alameda boulevard and sunshine boulevards and speeding and red light running will certainly be urging all our tracking tools to address those as well and i think that perhaps the
